Prolotherapy (AKA Regenerative Injection Therapy) is a non-surgical injection procedure for promoting repair of damaged connective tissue. Your prolotherapy treatment begins by anesthetizing the area of injury, followed by the local injection of a safe and natural proliferative agent directly into the area of dysfunction, injury, and weakness. Prolotherapy injections induce a wound repair cascade, which stimulates your body to marshal its innate repair mechanisms.
Prolotherapy has proven to be a highly effective treatment for acute and chronic pain from back and neck injuries. It is effective for mild-to-severe osteoarthritis and injuries to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, foot, and ankle. Unlike cortisone injections, which permanently weaken connective tissue, prolotherapy restores normal strength, elasticity, and function to ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and other connective tissues.
